Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker GoldFishy: "What about your life today is just like how you hoped things would turn out when you were younger?"

I had hoped at one point to be a writer who covered current events, and, at another point, to be a cultural anthropologist who wrote about culture for a broad non-academic audience. At neither of those points did blogs (or even the internet, as we know now it) exist, so I had no conception of how those often competing objectives would converge in such a then-inconceivable way.

But it's pretty cool that they did!
